Permits are issued by appointment only.
Complete your permit application packet and return to the Lake Whatcom Water & Sewer District office. When the permit is ready, a District representative will contact you to set up your permit intake and payment appointment. You must have your Whatcom County Building Permit before we can issue a Water and Sewer service permit. For more details and requirements, please read the permit application packet.
Engineering Office Hours are Monday to Thursday, 8 am – 4 pm, however our engineers are often in the field. If you wish to speak with someone from the engineering department in person, please call ahead and make an appointment.
For inquiries about water/sewer service availability, you will need to speak with our engineering department. To expedite the process, please fill out the top portion of the Water Availability form below and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail or drop it at our offices. This will allow the engineering department to begin the required research in order to issue either an availability or denial of service.
